Why he hates San Francisco: When John Oliver hosted the 2013 Crunchies, he laid into the tech geeks in attendance. “You already have all the money in the world. Why do you need awards after that? It is absolutely ridiculous. You’re no longer the underdogs, it’s very important that you realize that. You’re not the scrappy people that people get behind. It used to be that people who worked in the tech industry were emotional shut-ins who you could root for. Now those days are gone. You’re pissing off an entire city.”
Why he’s a complete idiot: Uh, he’s John Oliver. He’s not an idiot; he’s a genius. And in this case, totally spot on. YEAH. YOU HEAR THAT, NERDS?
